Afro-Latin Americans in the Miami Herald

The Miami Herald did a very interesting five-part series on Afro-Latin Americans. (HT: Republica Update). The series largely addresses the issues of race and heritage in Latin America and what it is like to be black in a Latin country.
The Association of Hispanic Advertising Agencies recently did a study on what it meant to be Latino. Their findings were that what makes someone in the US a Latino is not skin color or country of origin, but a feeling of belonging to the Latino culture and being connected to a Latino heritage.
At Admixture we have a Hispanic channel and we have an African-American channel. They’re completely separate and don’t have websites in common. However, we also have a Young\Urban\Multicultural channel that has sites from both of the other two, in recognition that in the United States, particularly among younger generations, sometimes you’re not only “Hispanic” or not only “African-American” but that identity can go much deeper and also much broader.
